the key ingredient.

That whole put your water logged electronic device in a bag of rice trick really does work!  I let my phone sit overnight in the rice and it works just like new this morning!  Praise  God!  I was so worried that I had ruined my baby cell phone.

Before I headed to bed last night, I was excited to prep this morning’s breakfast:  overnight oats in a jar!  I had an almost empty jar of sunflower seed butter that I was itching to use up.  Just look at all that deliciousness waiting to be eaten up!

My jar contained 1/3 cup each vanilla Chobani, almond milk, and rolled oats, plus 1 tablespoon each of chia seeds and cacao nibs.  Truth be told, the overnight oats were almost sans oats.  I was putting it all together and could not for the life of me figure out what I was missing.  Then it dawned on me that it was the oats!

Glad I remembered…it just wouldn’t have been the same without that key ingredient!  This is, hands down, one of my favorite breakfast treats!

This week’s weigh in put me right back where I was two weeks ago.  I’ll take it!   Now, if only I could break this run in the 160s and finally get back (and stay!) in the 150s, I’ll be a happy camper.

last weigh in: 162.4 | this week: 160.8 | change: –1.6 | overall: -72.2

After this Saturday’s 25k is done and in the books, I’m ready to really start focusing on amping up my weight loss efforts.  An increased focus on eating well plus a little extra time in the gym?  Let’s make it happen!

On a related note, Beth reached her weight loss goal today!  Congrats lady!  I’m so happy for you!

Work has been a bit stressful the past few days trying to resolve a couple different issues without much luck and it kind of makes me want to pull my hair out.  Or maybe just start crying.  Or drink a margarita or two.  None of those seem like the professional option to do at my desk, so I went with the next best alternative:  lunch from Jimmy John’s.  I looked back through the blog and was really pleased that it’s been 2.5 weeks since I last ordered JJs.  A new record, perhaps?

On a brighter note, I’m taking a couple hours off tomorrow afternoon!  By this time tomorrow, I’ll be wrapping things up and starting my weekend!
